Winter or Summer?

Yesterday night the Sherman Adams building closed for the season. Although the occasional cog train and hikers will still periodically grace the summit with visitors, so begins the long, cold winter. Long, cold winter I say, and yet the current temperature is 53 degrees F and winds light (relatively) at 39 mph. Currently the “summer-like” weather is being propagated into the area by an offshore high pressure system bringing warm air from the W. I hope as well as others, that is unseasonable trend changes quickly into a snow laden tundra.

Posted is a picture of last Wednesday (October 17th), and I’m hoping the rime returns soon.
